There’s the first initial attraction where your heart flutters, as that person rocks your foundation. You blush with them once locking eyes with one another. It’s called falling in love, as there’s the congenial obsession and gushing over each other.
The endless romance, the touching, the uncountable promises, the brilliant dreams of a bright future together, which continues nonstop until the wee hours of the morning.
Then reality eventually sets in, as each begins to annoy the other, as the persistent nagging overcomes and can become suffocating.
The relationship becomes tiresome especially for those who’s been married for a while, becoming boring and trapping. Thankfully there are ways to keep the romance alive.

Then fast forward to today, and discuss what happened, how things derailed. Just because you’ve been together for awhile, doesn’t mean you need to stop impressing one other.
